To mark the launch of Dan Schawbel's terrific Me 2.0 book about personal branding, it's a good time to also mention some of the other job search projects that JobMob contributors have created for you recently.
Dan Schawbel's Me 2.0 is now available
I introduced Dan to you in the past when he invited me to join his terrific Personal Branding Blog.
As the “leading personal branding expert for Gen-Y,” Dan's Me 2.0 is “the first book about personal branding written for the millennial generation by a millennial,” offering “practical and proven advice about personal branding.”
Some highlights of the book according to the official site:
- A proven 4-step process for building a powerful brand (discover, create, communicate, maintain).
- Tips on using social media tools for personal empowerment, confidence building, and professional networking in order to attract jobs directly to you, without applying!
- Tested advice on how to create an online and offline presence for career protection and self-promotion.
- Over 40 expert quotes from leaders including Don Tapscott, Guy Kawasaki, Penelope Trunk, and David Kirkpatrick of Fortune Magazine among others.
- More than 70 research reports, three personal case studies and examples to give you a broader perspective on the topic.
